  • Survivor Rammers -- Wow!

    Not Studebaker, but still I have a soft spot in my heart for these cars:

    My next Studebaker is in the future, but now getting my hair messed up in a Sebring ragtop!
    Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      BOTH are beautiful. It will be a shame to break up the "set".

      If I could find that vintage wagon (especially black over pink or pink over black), I'd probably pay the price. VERY nifty.

        [:0] True Story, Dick; and exactly what you would have wanted. Maybe 25 years ago here in Brownsburg IN, a middle-aged man inherited from relatives, a very nice pink / black roof & side spear 1959 Rambler Custom Wagon. It was a nice original car; not quite as nice as these, but not far from them, either.

        He parked it in dead storage on an open gravel fenced lot in back of a local service station/wrecker service. There it sat against the back fence in our rust-belt climate...unmoved, untouched, and unloved in the open elements, on gravel, more than 20 years.

        Finally, the owner of the place, a friend of mine, retired, cleared the lot, and leased it out for a used car lot. By that time, the car had deteriorated so badly that I'm sure it was junked. [xx(]

        That wagon's owner had paid my friend $30 per month storage for a minimum of 20 years (total over $10,000, honest!) to watch that car deteriorate from almost as nice as these, to junk!

        People do the stupidest things with inherited old cars, but I've often thought that stunt was close to the top of the list, in that I personally watched it, almost daily, for more than two decades.[:0] BP

              The first person I ever employed had a Rambler almost identical to the first picture, except it had a continental tire kit. Unfortunately, to him and his wife, it was just a junker and it went the way of such. Now he's my best friend and he doesn't have a Rambler to drive with me in my Stude.

                  I'd love one of these... '61 Ambassador. Rare bird, one-year-only front end.

                    WOW! Those are some cool Rammers! I could give any one of them a home.[^]

                    1957 Transtar 1/2ton

                    1953 Commander coupe
                    1957 President two door

                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                          They got a whole lot uglier in the 70s. IMHO



                          A friend of Sam Miller's had one of these and he brought it to one of the Studebaker meets. He also brought his wife who was self conscious about the length of her nose. As the owner pulled up, Sam said "I see you brought old long nose". (referring to the car) Just about that time his wife stepped out of the car and gave Sam a dirty look. Sam didn't know what to say!

                              If you like Ramblers there is a guy named Terry Gale who has a fantastic private museum outside of Denver that is full of Ramblers and Nashes. He also has a few Studebakers.

                              I stayed with him on my way to the Spokane meet in 2005.
